I would like to make an estimation of the CO2 uptake of plants I cultivate, including, lettuce and aromatic herbs, such as thyme, basil, rosemary. What I want is to end up with a rough indicator for business purpose, not some super-accurate measurement.
- Is there already average CO2 uptake data per plant type available?
- Will this uptake vary drastically per plant type?
- Can I calculate the estimate through a simple measurement (e.g. of plant weight) or does it require tight lab experiments? In the former case, how is that measurement made?
Please bear in mind I'm not a scientist, but and end-user of science. Thank you for helping me this question if needed.
